Anyone have mild asthma that doesn’t require daily inhaler and take propranolol? I have mild asthma, mainly my asthma when triggered is coughing. I’m concerned about taking this med as the pamphlet said do not take if you have asthma, but my doctor prescribed it, 10 mg twice a day. I have only taken one dose so far. I have a generalized anxiety disorder with chronic debilitating anxiety/panic and she wants me to take something to calm my system down. My heart rate stays high. I think I’ve tried every med out there for anxiety and so far nothing I can take daily has helped and not caused issues. I just recently had to stop Buspar. I feel like this drug is my last hope to being able to live my life.
That’s an a great question. I am currently taking Buspar and 10mg of propranolol twice a day. It’s been a great combo. I was initially worried about the “may cause shortness of breath” possible side effect as well because when my anxiety gets higher I have a tendency to have breathing issues. The good news is on our low dose, I have never had it affect my breathing. Talking with my doctor she said it’s more of an issue on the required dosage for HBP (80-120mg a day). Taking 20mg a day, I’ve only experienced relief and release of all body tension from taking propranolol. We are all different, but I hope this helps ease your mind a bit. Good luck to you!
